This magnetic nail holder lends a hand to make hammering easier and safer. It grips a nail for you, so you can preload one before you start swinging, and it keeps it straight and prevents it from buckling. (Try it with screws, too.) It also provides a better target to aim for. Miss hitting the nail? Don’t worry, impact-resistant ABS plastic can take it. Store the holder on your hammer between jobs.

I wish I had thought of this.

I really like this product. I am a massage therapist and I'm always having to protect my hands while doing work around the house. Now I don't fear hurting my fingers when I'm using my hammer or cordless screwdriver.More > < Less

boy this thing saves your fingers, is easy to use, well made and designed, a must have even if you use it for screws, not more jabbing a #2 phillips bit into your fingers from a driver or drill.More > < Less

I have not had a need to use my safety nailer yet, but I have given the nailers to a number of friends. So far two people have thanked me for saving their fingers!More > < Less


Are you a fumbler?

Yes, it keeps your fingers from being whacked but for me the best part is hanging on to the nail or screw. I typically drop the nail or screw four times before I actually get it in where it belongs. Be aware this is not good for any short nails or screws.More > < Less

About Safety Nailer

Nailed It

Safety Nailer Makers Drew Zirkle and Dan Eifes leaned on their backgrounds as civil engineers—as well as Dan’s as a safety officer in the Navy—to make a safer way to hold and hammer nails. Along with their wives, Cori and Kristen, they created this simple and clever magnetic holder.

It protects fingers and makes it easier to get nails started, and secures a nail (or screw) while keeping it straight and preventing buckling. The strike plate gives you a bigger (and eye-catching) target to aim for. Miss the nail? No worries. The durable holder is made from impact-resistant ABS plastic that can handle a hammer.

The strap-on design fits on left- or right-handed folks and is small enough that it won’t get in your way of what you’re working on. Store it on your hammer between jobs.
